Cloud Skill Spectrum
Strategy & Consultancy
While the benefits of leveraging cloud technologies are many and not debated, other parameters constantly weigh heavily on small business owners and CXO’s alike, such as – how will I manage my data on an on-going basis, how will I decide on what workloads to migrate, can I even extend my company IT policies to workloads that are on the public cloud, what will I do in case of a security breach, will my overall cost be less or more over a 3 year period?
